    However the MoMSG (mother of the MSG) called her afterwards to say we’d been on together at the beginning, which the MSG is very excited about as it’s very romantic so I’m told…… ;)
    You were on for fleeting half-second as it showed all the celebs arriving. I think the whole of MSG was in shot but only half of you, so it must have been your romantic side that was showing ;)

    Awww, I hope you and MSG will be as happy as dh and I. He's my childhood sweetheart having had our first date when I ws 14. 17 years and half a dozen children later and he still makes my heart skip a beat as much as he did the day we met.

    Two of my favourites of Milton Jones are:

    "I was mugged by a man on crutches, wearing camoflague. Ha ha, I thought, you can hide but you can't run....."

    "I was chased by police dogs recently, so I ran through small tunnels, dodged in and out in between sticks, over jumps and through hoops of fire - How was I to know they train for that."
    Apparently, if you lose one sense, others senses are enhanced. That's why those who have no sense of humour have an enlarged sense of self-importance.

    OK one of my favourite old ones of his

    "When the kids in the playground first discovered I had a possibly fatal allergy to peanuts.... they used to push me up against the wall and make me play russian roulette with a packet of Revels."
